New Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Trailer Pits Yuffie Against Scarlet (VIDEO)
When one thinks of Scarlet from Final Fantasy VII, it’s difficult not to recall the slap-fest that takes place between her and Tifa atop the cannon in Junon during the 2nd half of the game. This is the first time we really see Scarlet get her hands dirty, though Square Enix, being the sly foxes that they are, have flipped the script once again by pitting her up against Yuffie in Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. The final trailer for the PS5 version of the game shows just that, while also revealing the Ramuh summon, the return of the Fort Condor minigame, and more.
Square Enix debuted the final trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade earlier today. The trailer shows off some fresh story beats from Yuffie’s INTERmission episode, but before that viewers are treated to some gameplay featuring Cloud and friends that hypes up the improvements made to the PS5 version of the game. While most of what is shown is from the base remake, it’s also revealed that Weiss – that guy from Dirge of Cerberus – appears to be available as another simulation boss fight, whether it be available through Chadley or the Shinra Combat Simulator. It was kind of expected that he’d appear in Yuffie’s episode at some point, so seeing him now as an optional simulation battle is a bit of a surprise.
Following the bits of the trailer that feature Cloud and friends, Yuffie’s boredom leads to the reveal that Fort Condor – previously a separate location with its own battle system and rewards – is now an actual table-top minigame. Given that the minigame likely doesn’t exist to mock the actual real plight of the denizens of Fort Condor and the precious life that they protect, it’s likely that the Phoenix summon will be obtainable via different means in Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2, or even further down the line.
Later on in the trailer we also get our first look at the Ramuh summon, which features strikingly beautiful visual effects thanks to the power of the PS5. Given that the Lord of Levin specifically makes his appearance as a summon in INTERmission, it makes one wonder if this isn’t the ‘Ultimate Materia’ that Yuffie’s been looking for. The Ramuh summon – while powerful – is still just a basic elemental summon in a gamer’s eyes, though given Wutai’s struggles against Shinra, a summon that does immense damage to machinery could be considered to be the ultimate weapon in their eyes.
Speaking of machinery, Scarlet shows up in the trailer in what appears to be somewhat of a precursor to the Proud Clod. As such, it isn’t a simple slap-fest between her and Yuffie, but it’s probably the next best thing. It’s unclear what Yuffie is actually doing there duking it out with half of Shinra, but we do know from the trailer that she is aware that Sector 7 is in grave danger. As such, her infiltration into Shinra could be a two-birds-one-stone sort of thing, though she unfortunately fails to prevent the plate from dropping.
Yuffie’s anguish at seeing the fallout from the collapse of the plate is a gentle reminder that Wutai isn’t really against ‘Midgar’ per se, just Shinra. There is every possibility that she chooses to follow Cloud and friends out of Midgar in a bid to prevent something like that from happening ever again. We’ll be able to confirm this for ourselves when Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade releases for PS5 on June 10, 2021.
